Hello! So I recently decided to share my bookish goal and resolutions in my blog as well and not only in my bookstagram account and in other social media platforms. I have a massive bookish resolutions for 2021, and it is my first time doing it (doing yearly resolution).
Here’s what my bookish resolution list looks like.. I decided to put it into a BINGO format, because I think the idea is good in achieving these resolutions, I am up for the thrill in crossing them out. Although it
may seem is a lot. I am looking forward to them. I decided to break done the big chunk of the big piece of my resolution.
READING GOAL, GENRE EXPLORATION, OTHERS
I will be starting with my reading goal first. My reading goal for 2020 was 95 books if I am not mistaken and I have read more than that, which pushed me to expand my reading goal for 2021… but then, there’s school.. I’ll be first year in college in 2021 which I guess, it’ll be hard for me to fit in a time for reading unless it’s a vacation.
I set my reading goal to 50 books only this time, it’s okay if I’ll be reading more than that.
Under this reading goal, I also want to maximize my goodreads account for 2021. I only knew there were total amount of pages ready annually now. Because I never used my good reads account before.
For the longest time, Fantasy have been my comfort genre, as much as I want to start reading Mystery books, Thriller, Horror, I always find myself reading back to Fantasy.
So for this year I want to start reading books that is out of my comfort zone, I want to read more books from different authors and different genre’s. Horror, Thriller and Mystery Novels are the least genre I am into. Especially Horror, I actually like authors who execute their stories well and could definitely make their readers feel the eeriness of their books. I also want to read more books that are relevant to our society, like the LGBTQIA+ community novels, own voices novels, and books written by POC and BIPOC authors.
As for this one, it contains different goals I have this year like, reading outside the house like in a café or something to the hopes that COVID will be gone this year, join readathons and blog tours and also participate in REP search’s because I want to try them out too, I think the experiences of these activities will help me boost my self. I want to try buying bookish boxes and bookish merch this year too.
I will be in a Book Buying ban from January to June, it seems impossible knowing that as I am writing right now, I even find it impossible to happen. The reason why I am putting myself under book buying ban that long, is I am planning to buy books afterwards.
If I’ll be able to cross out my bookish BINGO this year, I’ll give myself a book as a reward.
